Student Guide: Purchase a Product

This article goes over how to purchase a product as a student.


Once you decide to purchase a product from a Teachable school, you'll first have to decide which pricing plan you want to purchase. If there is only one pricing plan, then you can click any enroll button on the sales page to bring you to the checkout page.


If there are multiple pricing plans, you'll have to choose which one you'd like to purchase. 


Pricing plan options:

Payment plan type Description
Free Allows access to product free of charge
One-time purchase Product has a one-time charge for use
Payment plan Product has a fixed number of monthly payments
Subscription Product has a recurring payment schedule (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, every 3 months, every 6 months, yearly)

Once you select a pricing option, you can continue to the checkout page by clicking the Enroll in course button.

NOTE: if you are purchasing a subscription, your recurring due date will be based on date of purchase. Subscription payment due dates cannot be customized.

The Checkout Page

Once you're redirected to the checkout page, you’ll be able to add coupons, add a Tax ID (if applicable), as well as select which account and payment method you’d like to use to purchase the course.

Order Summary

In this section of the checkout page, you can review the course you are purchasing, and the final amount. If applicable, this is also where you would enter a coupon code.

If you have a coupon code, clicking the Add Coupon button will reveal a text field for you to enter your coupon code. Once applied, the pricing will reflect your new discounted price.


If you are located in a country where tax is levied, the amount charged for tax will be listed in the Order Summary section. If you are purchasing as a business entity and have a valid Tax ID, you may enter your Tax ID in the Billing Address section of the checkout page, which will in turn remove the tax charge from your total.

Contact Information

In the Contact Information section, you’ll be prompted to enter in your email address. If this is your first time purchasing a product from this school, and therefore you do not have an account already, the email address you enter here will be used to create your account.


After completing your purchase, you'll be prompted to enter in your name and create a password for your account. You'll also be sent an email asking you to confirm your account (more on that below).


If you already have an account in the school, enter in the email your account is under. Then, you’ll be prompted to login via a popup window.

Billing Address & Business Details

If you are purchasing the product with a credit or debit card, you will be asked to complete your billing address. This is required for compliance purposes.

All customers have the option to check off a Delivery address same as billing field. If the delivery address is different from the billing address, customers will be prompted to fill in a delivery address as well. While there might not be any physical products associated with the purchase, this information is required to calculate any taxes, if applicable.


If purchasing the product as a business, click the Are you a business? Enter your Tax ID (if applicable) link. This will reveal a field for Business name and Tax ID number.
